Initializing WRF with Global ECMWF operational data


New member
Hi everyone!

I am interested in running the WRF for forecasting with operational data from the ECMWF. I would like to know. Do you know where can I find information on the pertinent adjustments that I have to make to enter the data into the model? What variables should I download so that I can run the model?

Take a look at this section of our WRF Users' Guide that discusses the mandatory input data required to run WRF. As for adjustments, it would depend on what you data look like. Many people have used ECMWF data to run the model. If you have specific questions, I'd suggest first doing a search in this forum to see if anyone else has asked a similar question. Let us know if you still have questions after that!
